Default Who Else Were Previously Undecided But Now Starting To Lean Towards Hatton?

I have been fence sitting on this for a while but just starting to lean Hattons way ova PBF...previously I have been thinking PBF by decision (despite my wind up posts)...but now I can see Floyd getting mauled and KTFO ....

And yes I do realize its just the prevailing winds of my opinion......thoughts?

well your entittled to your opinion but man....i just don't see it...Floyd is just as hungry as Hatton...both have a drive....both want to prove something the ONLY thing that Hatton has maybe more than Floyd is power but power is useless if you can't your target with it effective enough you know. Hatton does not have the skills nor body size in terms of height and reach man. Floyd is training damn hard as is Hatton but i think we will see a Floyd we havent seen in a long time we always have seen Hatton with pure aggression but i think Floyd is tired of the calling out by Hatton and now he really is taking this personal....i see Floyd still by a beautiful performance.

Let me see a bigger, stronger and better Oscar couldn't KO PBF but a smaller, lighter hitting not as good Hatton will?

Hatton is younger, stronger, hungrier, and deceptively quick. He has the exact style needed to beat a guy like Floyd. Hatton should rightfully be the favorite in this fight. If he were American, he probably would be the favorite. Floyd is in trouble for this fight, it wouldn't be suprised if Hatton throttled him. If he were somehow able to pull off the upset, well that would just cement Floyd's claim as the best fighter of his era.

what makes Hatton anymore hungrier than Floyd? I think Floyd really really has a drive to be the best....and he has lots to do to get there so i would be just as hungry as anyone else...right?

Floyd already is the best. He's accomplished things that most fighters can only dream of. He's won 6 titles in 5 weight classes, he won his first title at like the age of 20, he's p4p no.1, and he's beaten fighters of pretty much anykind of style that exist. Hatton on the other hand, is a highly talented fighter who's claim to fame is beating a couple of has beens. The accolades he's received are far below the talent he possess. This is the type of fight fighters dream of, beating the best the sport has to offer. Once again, if Floyd can pull off the upset, it would be something special. I don't know if he can do it though, Hatton is a beast. My head says Hatton, but my heart says Floyd.

I had previously given Hatton practically no chance but he is obviously in much better shape than he was for the Collazo and Urango fights so i will upgrade him to slight to fair chance

you seriously think Floyd is the underdog in this? i have to give it to you man because thats a big statement to stand by....i mean even the Floyd haters agree Floyd is not the underdog but hey you have your own opinions.

I still think they both are hungry in their own rights one no more hungrier than the next in this instance. Floyd truly wants to be regarded at the best EVER.....not just the best....no matter how far we think he may be he wants that you know....thats an incredible goal because he has the likes of Robinson,Ali,Leonard,Hearns,Duran i mean the list goes on in which he has to do a lot to overcome these fighters and Hatton is a stepping stone to this....he HAS to win you don't think he knows that you dont think he is just as hungry?

On top of that....i know Hatton is supposed to be the best pressure fighter Floyd has seen...but the fact is Floyd has seen tons of pressure regardless...Castillo brought it like hell and was a longer fighter...Hatton is not long and the reach for Floyd is 71 for hatton i think like 65....he cant beat floyd to the punch comming in and if he comes in without a punch man he is asking to get pummeled by someone who will hit his ass and when Hatton is in his range Floyd won't be there and Hatton now has to reset....i dont know man thats a tough task for Hatton who has NEVER seen anything like Floyd...ANYTHING.

Hatton has a lot more to prove, that's what makes him more hungrier. Floyd is already great, but he can't be the best ever if he's already thinking about retiremenent.

I'd like to see Hatton win but Floyd has the talent to make him miss.

You guys kill me!

Hatton is at the worst stylistic disadvantage against Mayweather, he will be picked apart all night long and stopped late after accumulated damage. Hatton won't win a single round.

I suppose you all assume that all pressure guys are the same, wrong, Hatton is nothing like Castillo or Cotto, the style that does pressure and bother Floyd. Hatton is straight forward, with no jab, head first and open always and won't be able to rough house effectively.

He gets annihilated, JESUS, grow up.

I just wish people would realise that Hatton isn't even a true elite, doesnt deserve a top 10 p4p ranking, that'd just make my whole day.

That is bullshit. Hatton is elite, and if Floyd wins, it's because he was better.
